The 17,600-hectare (43,000-acre)[2] park was established in April 1979[1] and is set on the east coast of Victoria, with its eastern boundary facing Bass Strait and its western boundary facing both The Lakes National Park and the eastern shores of the Gippsland Lakes. The park's northern boundary is south of Lakes Entrance and its southern boundary is north of Seaspray.[3] The park includes the Ninety Mile Beach. Since 2010, the park has been managed by Parks Victoria jointly with the Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation.[4]
